Multiple Guests Cancel After Kameha Con Announces Vic Mignogna Appearance

Irving, TX based Kameha Con has been making some waves this week, and not in a good way. The event, scheduled to take place in a few weeks, announced just a couple of days ago that none other than Vic Mignogna has been added to the convention’s guest list.

Needless to say this came as a shock to a lot of people, considering the allegations that have been leveled against Mignogna recently.

In response, a number of guests have cancelled their appearances at the event — Monica Rial, Josh Grelle, Jason Douglas, Daman Mills, and Sarah Wiedenheft. It should come as no surprise that Rial has chosen not to appear, as she is one of Mignogna’s more vocal accusers. Frankly, it’s outright puzzling why any convention would even think to invite both actors right now.

While some of Mignogna’s supporters seem to be reveling in the commotion, a number of people who had been planning on attending the event seem to be pretty unhappy about it. Besides invited guests, a number have taken to twitter in frustration with the convention’s decision.

In response to the public outcry regarding the announcement, the convention put out the following statement this morning on their social media:

And while the con has detailed their harassment policy, they have not posted anything else regarding the Mignogna appearance since.

We will update this story if anything else develops.
